Useful instruments for exploring hearing voices and paranoia: Sandra Escher
BySANDRA ESCHER
Pages 14

Over time we have learned through our research and our many contacts with voice hearers the value and importance of making a psychological formulation (Dallos and Johnstone, 2006) or construct (Romme and Escher, 2000) of the relationship between voices and life story as part of a systematic approach. We observed that we needed an instrument and therefore developed an interview based on our experiences with voice hearers, the `Maastricht Interview with Voices' (Romme and Escher, 2000) and also an interview for exploring paranoia.
